Stop Sweating & Body Odor with Botox

And once again, I never cease to be amazed at the random beauty tips my clients impart while I’m working on them. Today’s favorite: how to stop moist armpits and body odor with Botox. Yup – they’re injecting the stuff in the armpit region now. I instantly assumed this would pose a major health threat […]


Quick Fix for Ugly Roots

This is one of my favorite beauty secrets, and I was reminded of it recently when I waited too long to get my hair colored. Check out Roux ‘Tween Time, a temporary touch-up stick that is a fat crayon you wet and color over unsightly roots. The coverage lasts until you wash it out. You […]


Let’s Get Skinny!

When bubbly, bright and skinny Peg E came to see me for brows and lipliner, I couldn’t wait to ask her how she stays in such great shape. She told me that as a former ballet dancer, she had to adopt lifestyle changes to stay “dancer thin,” and she still follows these self-imposed rules: Do […]


Better Than an Apple a Day!

You’ve probably at one time or another heard someone rave about the amazing properties of Apple Cider Vinegar, known for everything from relieving sunburns and insect bites, to making hair shine.

This tip comes from a great little compilation of Beauty […]

Several of my clients have now shared that low dosages of Effexor (a prescription anti-depressant) has helped tremendously in minimizing menopausal hot flashes: talk to your doctor for more information.

Help for Brows

Everybody looks better with eyebrows! Sadly, we all (including men) lose them as we age (from the outer corner by the ear and then in towards our nose until we’re left with a little tuft of hair on each side). If you still have some, but they’re light, ask your hairdresser to color them next […]


A Gift for Sore Eyes

If your eyes get puffy after you cry, you’ll love this tip. Place two Chamomile tea bags in boiling water for 10 minutes. Remove them and put them in the refrigerator until they become cool. Place them over your eyes to reduce swelling.


Relief for Bruises

I recently begged my oldest client to give me her secrets for vitality: if you met her, you’d never know she was 93. She laughed and said, “genetics.” I explained that I needed content for my monthly newsletter and told her to give me something better than that. She thought for a moment and exclaimed, […]
